A sad day for the British Royal Family…

Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II and the longest-serving consort of any British monarch, has passed away today, 9 April at the age of 99.

According to BBC news, Buckingham Palace released a statement breaking the sad news by saying:

“It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.”

 

“His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle. The royal family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.”

The statement said “further announcements” will be made in “due course”, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

The royal family was in the midst of preparing for his 100th birthday celebration on June 10.

Over the recent years, the duke had suffered failing health and retired from duties back in 2017.

Prince Philip was a key source of support for the Queen. She described him as her “strength and stay” throughout their 73-year marriage and her record-breaking reign.

He is survived by the Queen and their children Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

He had eight grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.
